All Aboard Florida, the passenger rail line thats' about to connect South Florida to Orlando, says a bus depot is the key to the company's efforts to redevelop the downtown area near its Fort Lauderdale station.
The firm sees potential for a variety of uses — including shops, restaurants, offices, residences and maybe even a hotel. All Aboard Florida owns a 2-acre lot across from the station it's building on Northwest Second Avenue.
But the company has its eye on a more significant parcel: the adjacent Broward County Transit bus terminal that fronts Broward Boulevard at Northwest First Avenue.
